The defense of alibi is probably the least complex of all the affirmative defenses and simply principled on the fact that the accused was not at the scene of the offense but was at another place so as to make his/her commission of the crime impossible.  This defense must be raised within forty days of the defendant’s arraignment and must be accompanied by the specific location the defendant claims to have been during the commission of the offense and the names and addresses of the witnesses to be called at trial.
